Indiana University Health La Porte Hospital earned an “A” in patient safety by an independent national nonprofit organization, The Leapfrog Group. The Leapfrog Group is run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The organization calculates the Hospital Safety Score under the guidance of the nation’s top patient safety experts using publically available data on patient injuries, medical and medication errors as well as infections. Hospitals across the nation were assigned an “A, B, C, D or F” for overall safety. Of the 2,652 hospitals across the nation that received the Hospital Safety Score based on patient safety, only 729 earned an “A” like IU Health La Porte Hospital. “Our goal is similar to Leapfrog’s goal—to give patients the vital information they need and deserve before entering a hospital,” said President and CEO G. Thor Thordarson. “We, too, hope people will use this score to talk with their doctor, make informed decisions about where to seek care and take the right precautions during a hospital stay.” Chief Nursing and Quality Officer Pauline Arnold said, “Our colleagues are comfortable and open to discussing safety issues.  We are proactive in improving the overall care and safety of our patients.”  To see how IU Health La Porte Hospital scored compared to other facilities nationally and locally, or for more information on how the public can protect themselves and loves ones during a hospital stay, visit .

LUGAR SERIES APPLICATIONS
Seeks Hoosier Republican Women for Leadership Training
The Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series recently announced that it is seeking applicants from across Indiana for its 2012-2013 class. Inspired by the leadership of Senator Richard Lugar, for over 20 years the Lugar Series has sought to provide a first-class leadership training experience that encourages, mentors, and prepares selected women leaders from across Indiana to seek new levels of personal achievement and public involvement. The program gives participants unique access to public officials and an effective and diverse statewide political network. More than 400 women from around the state have completed the program, which was founded in 1990. Lugar Series applicants should have demonstrated leadership skills in their fields of work or community service.  Class members are chosen by a competitive application and interview process. “My commitment to encourage women to enter government and political service continues through my association with members of the twenty-two classes,” said Lugar.  “They have set a high standard for future classes and I look forward to working with them as they advance in the public sector.”  “Our mission is to increase the number of Hoosier Republican women in key elected and appointed governmental and political positions, including advisory and regulatory commissions at the local, state and federal levels,” said Judy Singleton and Higher Education Commissioner Teresa Lubbers, the co-founders of the program. To date, over 125 graduates of the Lugar Series are serving or have served in Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels’ administration through employment or appointed positions.  Applications are due Aug. 1 and are available by visiting or by calling 317-536-6900.

HELP AMERICA’S FORESTS
Join the Arbor Day Foundation

America’s forestland is a prized natural resource, and anyone can help plant much-needed trees in these vital areas by joining the Arbor Day Foundation. Through the Replanting Our National Forests campaign, the Arbor Day Foundation will honor each new member who joins the Foundation in July by planting 10 trees in forests that have been devastated by wild fires, insects and disease. The cost for joining the Arbor Day Foundation is a $10 donation. America’s national forests face enormous challenges, including unprecedented wildfires that have left a backlog of nearly one million acres in need of replanting. Our national forests need protection because they provide habitat for wildlife, keep the air clean and help ensure safe drinking water for more than 180 million Americans. “Keeping our forests healthy is vital to the health of people and the entire planet,” said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “By planting trees in our national forests, we will preserve precious natural resources and the benefits they provide for generations to come.” To join the Arbor Day Foundation and help plant trees in our national forests, send a $10 membership contribution to Replanting Our National Forests, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, or visit .
